paper • scalpel • ruler • scanner
 

Exploring the possibilities we have using paper as a raw material and the ways it changes 
when folded, cut, crumbled, rolled or else. I created an alphabet of pure paper letters,just using
simple materials like a cutter and a ruler.
 
I chose the scanner instead of a camera, because it is closer to paper as a material than a camera 
and makes sure that every letter is captured the same way. Also, the whole project was meant
to be an experiment, not just bout finding different possibilities to use paper but also a scanner and 
its very own abilities.
 

I hope you enjoy.
